Ykes! Sand is as bad as water. I would start with a simple can of air to see if it can be blown out.

Advice to all camera people......keep compressed air (cans) away from cameras (internal type mechanisms especially switches & sliding/slip joint surfaces) .

Who ever got the idea that blowing air "into" something blows "out" something (think about it)? What it does do is blow/embed particles further into mechanisms! Believe me, one air blast on an UZI EVF blew the dust right into the mechanism. So it's vacuum baby....vacuum.

Always try to vacuum out dust/grit (which by the way actually works with removing particles from the inside of an EVF). Of course, make sure you don't vacuum off pieces of the camera.
